Mark your calendars! The Society of Typographic Aficionados is pleased to announce that Boston, Massachusetts will be the host city for TypeCon2017 next summer — August 23rd to 27th.
It’s been eleven years since TypeCon took Beantown by storm back in 2006, and we’re excited to be returning to this vibrant and creative city. Quite literally steeped in history, Boston wholeheartedly embraces both the Olde and the Neue.
TypeCon2017 will take place at Boston’s iconic Park Plaza Hotel — situated in the heart of Back Bay. Directly across from Boston Common, the hotel is a short jaunt from the popular Newbury Street shops and restaurants. Other nearby attractions include the New England Aquarium, the Museum of Fine Arts, the Museum of Science, and Boston’s historic Freedom Trail.
Once again, we will be offering attractively discounted room rates for TypeCon attendees. Hotel pricing and booking details will be available early in the new year.
The success of TypeCon relies on you and your involvement. Over the next few months, we will be actively seeking volunteers, speakers, workshop leaders, plus ideas for design-related events, tours, and exhibitions to complete the TypeCon experience. Programming submission guidelines, volunteer information, and sponsorship opportunities will be posted as they become available.
Keep an eye on this site and Twitter for updates.
